Barlowe may not be a "member" per se but he sure DOES count b/c w/out him Bobby wouldn't have had any lyrics to mess up during the shows other than covers like Walkin Blues and CC Rider. He wrote the lyrics to some of the best tunes and it's like saying Robert Hunter's views don't count.

Phil was obviously upset by the decision, at the very least at not being told about it. Read his official statement; i don't see how you could conclude anything other than that he thinks it was a bad move.
